As part of yesterday’s deal of the day, there was a sale on the Uvex Bionic face shield. What I didn’t realize was that this was the version that has an anti-scratch and anti-fogging coating.
Steve pointed out in comments that the clear-shield model is still on sale. I checked it out, and yes, the S8500 Bionic face shield is on sale for $16.70 as part of an unspecified “deal.”
Looking at my order history, I bought my S8500 for $22 at Airgas more than 10 years ago, and it’s currently available elsewhere for around $27. $16.70 is great price.
This also explains why the S8510 on sale yesterday was surprisingly expensive everywhere else – that’s because it’s the anti-fog and hardcoat visor. This one that’s on sale now, the S8500, is uncoated.
Price: $16.70 “with deal”

Thank you to Steve for the heads-up!
I ordered the S8510 anti-fog version as part of yesterday’s deal. For just under $17, I just ordered a new uncoated visor as well, for comparison purposes. I’ve used the S8500 before, and it’s a great face shield.
